    650B skinwall tyres- are there any?

    I'm looking at getting some new tyres for my explosif. I think it would really suit some skinwall tyres as they'd go great with the skinny tubes and old school decals.

    What are my options? I've not seen any.
    Would be good to get a list going for others that may be interested.

    I believe the only skinwall'd option is the IRD version of the Fire XCpro. You can buy it here or from any bike shop with a Merry Sales account.

    IRD Fire XCPro 650b Mountain Tires

    There are several road tires with tan sidewalls but I'm assuming they aren't what you're looking for.

    The IRD Fire XC tires are available in Gumwall like SteveF said. I tossed them on my Rawland as I was building it up, although I am now using Pacenti/Vee Rubber tires. The tread is just too aggressive for any of the riding I do.
